We were served by a very nice waitress who helped us chose drinks. She offered suggestions which was a great help. I ended up with a cinnamon flavored beer which was amazing! Food was incredible. We got the sword to share and there was more...than enough food. We even got the option of have meat both medium for myself and medium-rare for my boyfriend which was great. It was well cooked and worth money. Dessert was great, particularly the pancake! Will definitely visit againMore

Appetizers were surprising and tasty, we had mushroom soup and hummus with bread. Both tasty. We chose The Sword for main course and it was generous on size, not so much on taste but it was alright. For dessert we took the huge dessert shield....We were four and the portion is for two to share but we couldn’t finish the portion after appetizers and main. Portion sizes are huge. We took appetizers and main for three to share and we were absolutely stuffed. Chocolate cake is delicious!More

It's a chain restaurant. It's a poor man's version of Medieval Times. The food isn't anything to brag about. It's okay but the viking -theme feels just a bit... silly. I've been here for a lunch couple of times and dinner maybe twice. For some...reason it appeals to many people - not so much to me.More

Chicken was so tough, that it wasn't eatable. Still had to pay full price. Took 2.5 hours for two people to eat main cource and dessert, even though, there were about 10 customers.

Whilst on business in Oulu I noticed this place which is located in amongst the shopping area of the town. The front door is at street level but the restaurant is sub terrainian! The restaurant is a bit dark but that is in character with...the rustic style. If you are a vegitarisn then read no further. This joint is for serious meat eaters. I had already had a couple of bad evening meals in Oulu so was looking forward to a decent meal with some vegetables on the side. The food was wholesome and tasty. the crayfish soup was a it disappointing but the main meal made up for it. I had a plate of roast and belly pork with potatoes, vegetables and pickle, very tasty.The beer is served in rustic small tankards all part of the rustic style. Overall a bit of a different viking experience but one of the better options in Oulu from what I could find.More

I have visited the place 3 or 4 times, and it has improved over the years in quality of the food. The place is nice to visit for a dinner with colleagues or friends visiting town as it offers good enough food (though a bit...regular) in a "special" viking atmosphere that is interestingly served.More

I went to this restaurant after making some research about a place where to eat some reindeer in Oulu. This place attracted me a lot because of its truly choreographic environment. As soon as you get inside you know what's going to happen because you...already need to get into some kind of basement which recalls a tavern from some far viking village in the middle of a Scandinavian forest. The waiter so kindly offers me two different options: lunch meal or menu a la carte. I go for the carte. I take probably the most scenic plate on the menu which consist in various pieces of meat served on a sword. Yes. A sword. The plate is surrounded with vegetables and side dishes, and also three different sauces and jams. Everything was just great, maybe a bit difficult to get the food away from the sword without messing around on the table, but the quality and quantity of food was enough to fill me up until the day after. At the end of the meal when paying I found out the coffee was on the restaurant and also I was given some chocolate. Yeah because I could not help myself with a dessert after eating that amount of food. Really great experience!!More

Themed restaurant and it was a shame it was quiet the night we went but for our large group the service and food was excellent. We were well looked after and imagine it must be great fun when it's crowded.
